Harvey Pittard
Harvey Pitteard
Public Area Attendant
Aloft Louisville Downtown - White Lodging

Harvey is willing and always helps every department in the building. He is constantly moving from one task to another. He is the go-to person if you have a question. No matter the request, Harvey will say yes and take care of it. He does not come from a place asking why did this happen. He comes from a place of “let's fix it” and help.

Walter Munday
Walter Munday
Outreach Manager
Louisville Parks and Recreation

Walter can commonly be found tabling at public events, working at public meetings and answering questions, or serving as a department liaison to various local organizations. If he's not doing those things himself, you can bet he is doing whatever he can to ensure that whoever is will successfully represent the department's interests.

Walter makes community connections with non-profits and community organizations to let them know about what resources we have. More than a decade ago, Walter decided that many of the events and meetings he attended while representing Parks and Recreation should be documented, and he began taking photos. He's become an ace photographer and is responsible for many of the great photos of smiling faces and happy park patrons on the department's social media platforms.
